A little about me...

My name is Rennae and I’m a mum and business owner who is avidly invested in the baby and toddler feeding space. Having studied Children’s Nutrition, I already had a keen interest in the role we, as parents, play in nourishing our babies. Eight years ago, I had a wonderful experience introducing solids to my first born through baby-led weaning, however I grappled with the lack of tools available for babies to self-feed. This led me to start distributing feeding products four years ago. It was empowering to be a part of a broader community who were equally passionate about offering parents kid-safe, practical and innovative solutions, however it got me thinking… What if we could bring these incredible businesses together and offer parents with more than just a product? I envisioned a platform where partnerships between like minded brands could be forged on the premise of offering busy parents a trusted, holistic approach to weaning to solids and beyond. Starting Solids is this vision brought to life and I couldn’t be prouder of the community we have built.

A little about me...

My name is Rennae and I’m a mum, a business owner, and have studied Children’s Nutrition. I had a wonderful experience introducing solids to my own children through baby-led weaning 8 years ago but realised that the right tools were not available for babies to self-feed. This led me to start distributing feeding products 4 years ago into Australia. Since then the Baby and Toddler feeding industry has exploded with products and brands, making it difficult for parents to choose. As a part of the industry already, I noticed parents didn’t know which products to go for and it took a lot of time (which let’s face it, we don’t have a lot of as a parent) to research the best solutions. I also noticed a lot of small businesses with original designs being undercut by the big retailers and so I envisioned an online space where customers could be connected to small designers directly and shop for all their favourite brands in one place, easily and hassle-free. Starting Solids® is about community support in more ways than one.
